|The Inclusion Project||This year the Inclusion Project will be celebrating its 10th year and we are certain that this year’s performance will yet again capture the hearts of our audience. Each of our groups will present their own short performance, and will then join together to perform the final piece, a brand new song specially commissioned for the project’s finale. The song is based on the groups own thoughts on the theme ‘SEND a Message’. All of this was made possible through a generous grant from the ScottishPower Foundation.
